Working on the Red X Gansey
While my mind is whirling about what projects I want to knit next, my hands are working on finishing up projects that have been sitting around for a while.
This Red X Gansey has been waiting many months for some sleeves. Now the first sleeve is done and the second sleeve started.
No stopping now until it's finished it I want the sleeves to match. I took good notes on the first sleeve but my knitting notes tend to lose their meaning when left sitting around too long.
Here's an underarm view of the faux seam and the little gusset.
